Portfolio > The Twilight Zone Project

A while back my brothers and I started up Sound, Sight & Mind, a podcast dedicated to The Twilight Zone. While discussing and debating the series I rediscovered my love of the classic show, and, inspired by designers ranging from Saul Bass to Juan Ortiz, I decided to create posters inspired by individual Twilight Zone episodes, with the goal of designing one for each of the 156 original episodes.

Five Characters in Search of an Exit

I could have gone in many different directions here, but since "Five Characters in Search of an Exit" is such a strange, minimalist excursion into the theater of the absurd, I wanted a poster more symbolic than literal. Looking at the work of Saul Bass for inspiration, I found five different paper patterns to represent the five characters and made this digital collage in photoshop. The result is an abstract design that I feel is quite successful for the episode.
